In recent years, the “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door”, under the banner of Buddhism, has attracted many followers through many channels, such as networks and broadcasting. At present, the organization has more than 3 million followers, mostly Chinese believers. “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door” has also been held in Malaysia, Hongkong and other places. There are 20,000 people at least and 80,000 people at most. However, Lu Junhong, the founder of “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door”, acquired hundreds of millions of illegal properties by the dharma assembly, merit box, attached goods and life liberation each year. Why did it develop so quickly when it was founded for 17 years?
The “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door” was founded by Australian Chinese Lu in 2000. Lu Junhong was born in 1960 in Shanghai, and he used to be a staff member of Shanghai Changning Opera Troupe and Jingan Yue Opera Troupe. In 1989, he moved to Australia and joined its nationality, while he founded the Australia Oriental Radio and appointed himself as director. Since then, Lu Junhong became a buddhist master.
In the introductory manual of the “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door”, Lu Junhong was touted as the spokesperson of Guan Yin Bodhisattva (One of the four bodhisatva of Buddhism). Buddhism believes that he has a bodhisattva’s supernatural that can proceed merciful ferry. Bodhisatva has 48 body that can enter the dream to save lives. People said that he has sowed the lotus in the sky for the believers from “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door”, and he welcomes all of you to go to heaven with him. Lu Junhong also claimed that he can cure all diseases. He can look at a person’s lesion like medical B ultrasound or X light, while he can also see the cause and the disease that is about to develop.
In order to attract believers, the “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door” fabricates a lot of cured cases. There are many cases of healing by believers, such as cancer, AIDS, infertility, mental illness, cerebral palsy and vegetative diseases. The promise of curing all diseases deceived many people to join in it.
Huang Yin, Lu Junhong’s pupil, joined the “Spiritual Dharma” because his mother had stomach cancer. Her husband Liangping told her that “there is only one way to save our mother, that is chanting.” Huang Yin, like catching a straw, followed her husband into the practice of “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door”.
She no longer goes to work, reads eight or nine hours every day, but her mother still dies. After her mother died, she still kept chanting and hoped her mother up to heaven.
After 4 months of her mother died, her 49-year-old sister was hospitalized with brain aneurysm bleeding. Because Liang Ping is the main identity of Shanghai meditation group, the believers are chanting for Huang Yin’s big sister. Although the believers prayed for medical treatment, her sister died at last. She was grieved due to the continuous departure of their loved ones. When she called Lu Junhong, it was told that she would need to read more for her departed relatives to go to heaven.
After listening to the words of Lu Junhong, Huang Yin placed chanting Buddha Taiwan at home to recite or chant scriptures. According to Lu’s word, she would change flowers, fruits and Buddha water every day. She also asked his son to chant, because Lu Junhong said that the “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door” would be better for young children, and practice can protect his intelligence and health.
In 2014, Huang Yin took Lu Junhong as her teacher in Hong Kong’s Dharma Door and got Lu Junhong’s disciples certificate. Lu Junhong told her, if difficulties or sick is encountered, he will come to rescue as long as the disciples certificate is putted on body’s chest. Meanwhile, the certificate is also a ticket to all believers up to heaven, and Huang was convinced. She thought that Guan Yin Bodhisattva was for the benefit of the masses. The vegetarian to chant buddhist scripture advocated by Lu Junhong are kind-hearted, and she believed that Lu Junhong won’t be wrong.
Huang and his 43- year- old husband Liang Ping are working on the “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door”, which makes other believers admire. Many believers opposed marriage or even divorced because of opposition from their loved ones or their families.
After 5 years of practice, her husband got up at less than 4 am every day. After chanting the buddhist scripture, he will take the book of the “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door” to the market, the subway or the place where people were crowded to advertise it in order to accumulate merits and virtues.
However, in August 2015, after helping another believer carry out a few boxes of books, he suddenly fell to the ground and died. The most unacceptable thing is that Liang Ping’s death was defined as making money and having sex by Lu Junhong. Wealth accumulation and prostitution are harmful to virtue. How can he do such self-destructive deeds when he wants to accumulate good deeds?
She inquired about all bank cards and social software chats of her husband. There is no extra money, and the contact information with women has no ambiguous words. His chats are all about carrying forward the teachings of Buddhism. On the contrary, because a large number of books are send to release people freely, their family life is difficult.
In 49 days after Liang Ping’s death, Huang Yin had the life liberation every 7 days. The whole year from 2015 to 2016, she was going to knock 108 heads at the front of the Buddha Taiwan, and chanted the Buddhist scriptures 2 times.
She knocked 108 heads for the first time, and it lasted more than an hour. After the knocking, she collapsed and lay in bed for a long time. This year, Huang Yin read Little House (also called Buddhist scriptures) 800 times for her husband, releasing 20 thousand fish, and also released 20 thousand fish. She wished to release 100 people to practice the “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door”. All she did was hope that her husband would be able to go up to heaven.
But in March this year, Lu Junhong told her, because her house burned paper money, Liang Ping fell from the sky. This news sounds like Liangping died again for Huang Yin. She knew that the family did not burn paper money for Liang Pin. Lu Junhong was suspected of causing Liang Ping’s death by associating with the cause of death.
For the first time, she searched the organization on the Internet. She found a large number of post saying “the Dharma Door is a cult”. Prior to this, Lu Junhong told the letter that the search engines are evil. Practitioners can neither search the Dharma nor look at other Buddhist teachings on the Internet, otherwise they will lose their merits and virtues. By searching, she stumbled upon a group to resist the “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door”. She found that more people were skeptical of the Dharma Door as much as she did. It further strengthened her withdrawal from it.
Her withdrawal was threatened and cursed by many believers. The believers curse that her son would become orphans and she would suffer from violent death within six months. The man who introduced the work to Huang Yin is also a member of the “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door”. After learning that Huang Yin had quit, the believer forced Huang to resign. However, Huang resolutely decided to opt out.
Lu Junhong’s “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door”, like the common cult, is firmly controlling the masses with its own theories and make them willing to listen to their commands.
Lu Junhong never explained any of the classics of Buddhism to the believers. He borrowed only some concepts and theories of Buddhism, and even misinterpreted the basic concepts of buddhism. He claimed that he has escaped supernatural powers. According to the year of birth, the zodiac and the sex, he can use a similar “fortune totem” to foresee the Totem’s position, shape and color, and he can understand the person’s previous and present life, as well as causakity without space and time barrier. In order to befog the minds of the people, he claimed that practicing this method not only can cure the disease, but can cure disease.
Intimidation was also Lu Junhong’s usual method of controlling the believers. He made a fortune telling to his listeners through some TV shows such as “a summary of metaphysics”, “Straight Talk” and “Vernacular Buddhism”. On the one hand, he develops members of the organization in a way similar to the pyramid scheme and the “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door” also took shape. On the other hand, he spread his views through the columns to induce the believers. Lu Junhong used the “the ghost (spiritual) upper body ” and ” Talking about the mysterious dream” to intimidate the blind Buddha believers. In fact, what he called “spirituality” means ghosts, and the spiritual upper body refers to the ghost upper body.
In October 2, 2016, at the (Taiwan) scene of Lu Junhong’s world Buddha meeting, he told a believer in a wheelchair that “You provoke spirituality, there is a man on your waist, I help you ask for a Bodhisattva to let you live a little longer”. Lu Junhong will meet at the world Buddhist site (Taiwan), Lu Junhong of a believer in a wheelchair said. The believer’s abdominal cancer has spread.
At the same meeting, he said to a believer who consulted the health of his mother, “I see your mother’s brain has a male spirituality. Therefore, she needs to read the Heart Sutra 17 times a day, otherwise, she will be depressed.”
He made the anxiety by fabricating heresies to control the spirit of believers. He eventually induced and threatened believers to use the unique “burning house” (a Buddhist activity to release soul) to achieve the purpose for karma, disambiguation, disease-curing, restorative and greediness.
For Lu Junhong and his”Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door”, the Buddhist Association of several areas made it clear that it is not the true buddhism.
In February 21, 2014, the main Buddhist groups in Malaysia issued a joint statement and said that the content of “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door” advocated by Lu Junhong added a lot of annotation which has never been interpreted in real Buddhist mantras. The Buddha dharma he claimed are not what the Buddha said, which warned people not to be deceived by the folk Buddhism organization. The Buddhist groups point out that Lu Junhong claimed he can channel and Bodhisattva, and was known as the incarnation of the Guan Yin Bodhisattva”. However, what the Buddhism emphasized is not people but the law, and truth Buddhism does not encourage personal worship atmosphere.
In June 13, 2014, for the problem of the “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door”, the Buddhist Association of Chinese issued a statement that the development of the “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door” does not conform to the Buddhist doctrine, and it is not the true buddhism. China also pointed out that Buddhist monks had publicly declared that he is a Buddha or a Bodhisattva incarnation spokesperson in the history of Buddhism. There is no “totem watching” statement in Buddhist classics and doctrines, and there is no “totem watching” statement in Buddhist classics and doctrines.
The real “Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door” has neither the profound Buddhist doctrine nor the Buddhist doctrine. At the same time, it is not strictly in accordance with the genuine empirical system gradations, and it did not rely on the self-purification of its meaning remain stable on the path to improve the nature of mind. These are the consensus of the International Buddhist community.
In recent years, the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door was questioned by many parties, and repeatedly cracked. At the end of 2015, the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door was also accused of publishing and promoting Lu Junhong’s article on the fake people’s Web page. On the surface, Lu Junhong claimed that he could change all living beings, and bring these people to their senses. He asked the disciples of Buddhism cannot set up merit boxes to raise funds. However, Lu Junhong is very greedy. All his actions were designed to amass more money and wealth. The way of making money can be described as varied.
The first method is to recruit apprentices. Lu Junhong has a grand apprentice ceremony. When taking him as the master, the apprentice must offer rich and generous money. How to make believers active paid apprentice fees? Lu Junhong will give hints to the believers ahead of time. For example, in his apprentice, he said at the first meeting: “Among the overseas disciples who had received this lesson, a man had visited four masters. He had not studied with any master, for he could not find the master after he had finished the division. One of my disciples once worshipped a famous master. After paying six thousand yuan, the master touched his head, and after that, he never saw his master again. I’ll never do that. Once you worship the master, you are my disciples. I will certainly care about you, love you and help you, this is the master’s responsibility.” This is a hint that the disciples need to know the market. Gifts determine the master’s attitude towards himself. Lu Junhong’s apprentice fee is at least ten thousand yuan. There will be no ceiling or floor in giving the apprentice fee.
The second way is to sell spiritual things. Lu Junhong’s business mind is quite developed. Based on his own flamboyant outfit, he compiled many ways of making money. “Special radio” and “little house”, “Bodhisattva”, “life liberation” and so on, believers have to buy at a high price.
1. Radio. Lu Junhong’s program for the Oriental Chinese radio station in Australia will cover copyright, technology and other related issues, the listeners were not able to receive the program by ordinary radio. Therefore, the apprentice must buy Lu Junhong’s dedicated radio. If 5 million believers each buy one, this will be a huge income, and it naturally falls into Mr. Lu’s pocket.
2. Lu Junhong asked believers to burn little houses every day. This “little house” is not a real house. It is that Lu Junhong put Buddhism of the four curses (heart, great curse, to curse, seven Buddha crime sinus) wantonly arranged into a combination, every day he prescribed believers according to the number of times to recite verses. The believers have to draw the little circle on the red dot in a similar small house pattern of yellow paper, and then burned.
Disciple Li Ling’s son is in bad health. After joining the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door Lu Junhong told her, “There is an old grandmother in her son, so she needs to read 172 little houses”.
Lu Junhong said, “little house in the sky is a big energy, in the ground is a big ticket.” “A little house can replace 10 gold bars in hell”, “the little house can not only eliminate the evil creature, it can repay the debt”. However, “the little house” is not gratuitous. Lu Junhong used to print millions of little houses, which are needed by believers. Although he claims that apprentices can download patterns of little houses on the internet, almost all disciples believe that the little house printed by Lu Junhong is more powerful.
3. Guan Yin Bodhisattva and other tokens. A statue of Buddha needs 1100 to 2700 yuan, which is more ridiculous than the average buddha. However, due to Lu Junhong’s reveal, believers are more willing to buy bodhisattva from Mr. Lu.
4. On the beginning of New Year and the fifteenth, there will be releasing activities, which is a big expenditure for the believers. In general, the life liberation is organized by the meditation group. According to Zhang Jing, a believer in Guangzhou, she said, you can’t take the information of Dharma Door or take pictures when you’re free. You just give the money to the organizer and show how much fish you’re going to release. But the believer himself did not know where the fish was, and there was no account. Sometimes, at the scene, the organizers even said that the fish is too much, believers must add money to continue to release them. As a matter of fact, the money fell into Lu Junhong’s pocket.
5. In order to secretly earn money, in the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, the believers’ donations, printing books, and life liberation, as well as calendars, desk calendar, fans and other expenses, these cannot be leaked out. Lu Junhong said, “if it leaks out, it doesn’t do anything” or even hurts the merit. Therefore, only a few people still have the “Oriental media to carry forward the Buddhist charity” receipts. it is not at all clear How much money the faithful spent and how much money donated for Lu Junhong.
According to police investigation, from March 2010 to May 2015, the domestic believers’ remittances to the “Oriental Taiwan” account by 842 times. The amount of money is equal to RMB 641 million yuan.
The third way is to encourage disciples to “do merit.” The so-called “merit” is to give Mr. Lu donations. The director said, I can tell you, a lot of people, if he has really done great deeds, or he really learns well in the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, for example, someone have the opportunity to stand next to the director, I tell you, that is, if long on his side, long as long as the director in the world, I can hold him up. However, if someone wants to get promoted by director, he has to “make great merit.” When the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door is spread, it is accompanied by a book which named Yu Li Bao Chao. The book said, “The ascetics should do more good things, with these merits to offset their own sins, this is a shortcut to the monasticism.” The merit of the person who contributes money and labour is 100%, the merit of the person who contributes money but no labour is 50%, and the merit of the person who contributes no money and no labour will get some inside results. Money is merit. Money is absolute principle. Money is the real Dharma Door. Money is Mr. Lu’s “totem” and “lifeblood”.
The fourth method is the spread of dharma assembly. In Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Macao and other countries and regions, Lu Junhong frequently held a large scale of dharma assembly. Each dharma assembly will not only have high traffic and accommodation fees, but also set up a charity sale and a number of merit boxes at the scene. All kinds of landscape paintings, pendants, video machines, books and so on need to be bought at a high price. In fact, a few cents can buy the landscape painting, after it has been blessed by Lu Junhong, according to the different sizes, they sell at 30, 50, 100, 150, 200, and 250 yuan respectively. The Bodhisattva statue at the site of the law was also sold at a price of over 1000 yuan. But even so, believers are still treasured, and queuing up to buy it.
Of course, the more money a believer throws into the merit box, the better. All books on the last page are published with a variety of bank accounts to raise money. Many of the believers who participated in the dharma assembly were reluctant to eat, and the accommodation was seven or eight or even more than ten people crowded a room, but they are willing to put thousands, hundreds of thousands of money out to do support.
According to the relevant departments revealed that each year through the participation of believers in Malaysia, China, Hongkong and other places held more than ten large scale dharma assembly, and through the establishment of a donation box, selling goods to organization ceremony, and life liberation and so on, they are illegally making money, and Lu Junhong gets hundreds of millions of illegal property each year.
Wang Shulan, who lives in Yinan County, secretly donated his hard-earned money to the Guan Yin Citta dharma assembly. She also lied to her husband and son, and bought all the savings for her son’s marriage, about three hundred thousand yuan, all taken out to give the Guan Yin Citta dharma assembly.
Zhang Youjun, 45 years old, joined the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door in 2014. In more than two years, because of indulging in self-discipline, he not only lost his job, but also spent about 200000 of his family property.
One believer mentioned in her experience that she had donated 80 thousand yuan at a time. In addition to the necessary expenses, the income was basically donated to Lu Junhong, which resulted in a serious feud within the family.
In May 2015, a female believer privately sold houses. 1 million 230 thousand yuan was all donated to Lu Junhong, an entity based on the radio – the Secretariat of the East.
Like all cults, the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door always tries to control the believer’s thoughts and behavior. Lu Junhong claims to believe that his Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door will be able to cure all diseases, whether it is “physical disease” or “spiritual disease.” Many believers delayed the treatment by listening to Lu Junhong’s words and being ill and not going to the hospital. Once the person died, Lu Junhong said that the patient with a very heavy “sin.” If they do not learn the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, they cannot die in peace.
A female believer has been reading little houses and reading well, Lunar New Year’s day at two o’clock, she suddenly died. When her husband found that she has been mouthful of foaming, and soon within an hour there is no breathing…
Lu Junhong replied: This kind of thing is not surprising, because she took a very heavy sin, just to her later years, if she does not learn the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, she would not have gone so happy.
A netizen named “suffering in life” said he had a bad sleep for a long time, and his father had uremia in 2008. He and his mother religiously read “little house” at home every day. As a result, after a few months, it did not cure him and his father’s illness, and his mother had hallucinations and become a mental illness!
Zhang Hong, who lives in Minhang District, said her daughter was a foreign female white-collar worker, and now resigned at home, all day chanting, burning the “little house.” Now, his daughter had a cold, fever and stomach pain refused to go to hospital for treatment, and insisted that listen to Lu Junhong’s admonition, it can cure all diseases.
Obviously, the trick of the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door is not just the above. However, Lu Junhong already has hundreds of millions of assets, but his believers are lost both men and money.
Huang Yin couple spent about one hundred thousand in the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door. Among them, the donation for Lu Junhong is 80 thousand, and the life liberation cost is more than 20 thousand yuan. In addition, there are fees to attend the dharma assembly and mail books.
After drop out from the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, Huang Yin established a WeChat group that was anti- the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door. At present, the WeChat group has more than 200 people. She often re-post articles that expose Lu Junhong, hoping that other believers will wake up when they see it.
Throughout the country, there are also many anti- the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door groups, and some people have built WeChat Subscription to deliver the non-legal information of the Dharma mind.
Now, with the help of the neighborhood committee, Huang Yin has found her job again and her life has slowly returned to normal.
Recently, the relevant departments have taken measures to ban Lu Junhong entering the country. The Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door is also characterized as an illegal organization with cult characteristics.
With more and more disillusioned believers, we believe they will help more people find a happy life out of Lu Junhong’s “mind” trick.
